Say Yes is a national, non-profit organization committed to dramatically increasing high school and college graduation rates for the nation's urban youth. Research (including 20 years of field-based experience and the results of a comprehensive literature review conducted by the American Institutes for Research) has shown that the primary obstacles to post-secondary access for low-income students fall into four key domains: Academic - many students arrive at urban elementary school without the benefit of access to high-quality preschool programs and without school literacy preparation. This experience and skill gap often leads to behavioral and/or academic problems in school, as well as lower academic expectations, a focus on behavioral management rather than on education, inadequate challenge and support, and increased placement into special education. Additionally, urban schools tend to be under-resourced in comparison to suburban schools ? this translates into higher turn-over rates for qualified teachers, less access to technology for students, and fewer arts and extra-curricular programs even though these schools often have more challenging program needs (e.g., English Language Learners). And, children from lower-income families are less likely than their more affluent peers to have easy access to technology (see Towards Equality of Access, Gates Foundation, 2004) as well as to the use of technology to promote creativity and higher order thinking. Social-emotional - urban schools often lack the resources and political momentum to provide high-quality social-emotional curricular programs. Additionally, many urban schools lack the capacity or will to support and foster strong family and student engagement Health - students and families often lack access to adequate health care, which leads to undiagnosed and sometimes untreated physical and mental health problems that in turn may cause school absence and poor performance relative to ability Financial - many urban
